Great game

This game is brilliant. Nicely ported, natural controls (feels almost as if it were made for iOS!) and priced reasonably for such a great game.

It's also quite difficult. This is not a problem, but I recommend just grinding to get the basics down, before I did this I was getting owned. One more point, please implement multiplayer! I really want to play multiplayer.

I have found a problem though. Sometimes, in random situations the game freezesThis is not major though, as a quick press of the home button (without actually closing app from bottom bar) and re-opening seems to do the job.

overall a very good game 4.5/5 (rounded up)
- recently I've found a problem of the game crashing, and as odd as it seems, it always seems to happen very close to a victory ( probably a coincidence but a nuiscience nonetheless)

Hardest RPGs ever

Hi usually I have no problem playing RPGs being a RPGs player since play station 1 first came out and having competed 7,8, and 9 final fantasies etc I thought this would be easy. It's not it's hard you need to do a lot of grinding in the early stages just to get past the first 5 or so stages. And defeat the mages first cause they know level 2 spells other than that it's a great game with great story and I love the drawings and graphics they use. The most Visuallay appealing game on the iPad so far. One thing I forgot to mention save your game at the start before the first mission or else you'll go continue and you end'll up watching yourself lose again unable to do anything to stop it. Needs a quit or back to title menu during battle.

Great game!

I absolutely love this game, and since the latest update I have had no crashes at all!
The antialiasing that has been added makes things a touch more blurry but I think it's a fair trade off and makes the game look nicer over all.
This update is SO overdue, but very welcome none the less. Now I can fully enjoy this legendary game :^)

UPDATE: I have come across one bug so far. After video cut scenes finish I get the sound from the scene play again from the beginning on the map screen. Once I enter a location it stops though. Weird and a little annoying but luckily not a game breaker :^)
